Renner seems like a tool to me. www.nonipplesonthesuit.com

Some of them need a bit better writing/jokes... Like the girl talk, and the drunk uncle. But I still like those sketches.

Anne Hathaway is right behind him.

Totally agree with you on MacFarlane, but crikey, Hathaway was horrible. Can't agree with you on that one.

Kate McKinnon is being sorely underused tonight.

That wasn't good. It was weird. The piano screw up in the beginning was the funniest part.

- The Avengers sketch took the obvious Hawkeye jokes and ran with them, but the rest of the cast in costume was well worth the telegraphing. - The stand-off short was funny, especially when Adam Levine drew on them for no reason. - Chris Christie was himself funny and more natural than you'd expect. The only thing missing was a Twinkie joke. - The morgue bit at the end, while typical SNL throughout, had a goofy, but fun twist at the end that I like. - The Wolf Blitzer sketch could've used a bit of polish and meaningful length. It had a good gag, but used it maybe one too many times - as if it was just padding. - The movie extra sketch. Should've run with the "Dick Juice" jokes instead of the slap ones. They would've walked a line, but it would've been much funnier. - Maroon 5... Meh. Not particularly terrible, as SNL has showcased much worse. Just not awesome tunes. - The monologue actually benefited from the goof. It set a playful tone for what should have been a by the numbers boring opener. Overall, I think that the episode had more hits than misses. Not the best episode of the season, but definitely not the worst. I'm sure that they've got a bit or two worth recycling on their "best of" vids and specials out of this.

This episode and the Seth McFarlane episode (and the Louie/Lincoln sketch) are easily the best so far this season. That little mess up with the piano worked spades in Jeremy Renner's favor......I was expecting some fake piano and bad singing, but he was damn good.....better than listening to Maroon 5 It looked like the cast was having a great time.......a lot of the shows this season, it feels like the cast was trying too hard to sell the sketches, but this week they just let it flow and it made a big difference. It almost feels like there was a new director for this show.......it was that different

I'm listening to the first song Maroon 5 played on SNL last night -- and it sounds just like the beginning of SCTV's most famous skit, Great White North. See for yourself in this 10-second clip - http://youtu.be/Cnm2GUML-7w

Renner's a talented guy. I figured he'd be stiff, but he really surprised me.
